have been superior. just have medicare for all which would be most simple. the bill you could probably write on one page. gn afraid of blowing up the system. so the catch-22 is in order not to blow up the system you create a con structure that - well, 85 percent of them have healthcare now which they're reasonably satisfied with. >> that's the problem. same way if you came to me and said are you happy with the fire insurance on your house? >> i don't have a fire. i don't know. >> right. so your satisfied. >> the elderly are most apposed to this and they're actually the ones that have used it a most. >> but that's - who covers the elderly byron? >> medicare. >> yes! >> they all have supplemental. >> but the reason, what weaver seen with the remarkable dynamic is that the people that have government healthcare, the elderly are most concerned about the reform precise because they're happy. >> because the president proposed to cut 1/2 billion dollars. it was the only way he could pay for example tending the coverage to people that don't want it. >> and individualism and freedom

the premiums go up. they didn't want to see taxes go up. they didn't want to see us taking money from medicare to create yet another entitlement program and they were scared about the endless spending and debt they've seen coming out of washington last year. if the white house and the democrats didn't get that message, then i think they really missed the point of what happened in massachusetts. >> chris: on the other hand, you just heard robert gibbs, he cites a poll from the "washington post" that indicates that they want scott brown to come in and work with democrats, that they're not -- they want some healthcare bill, just not the healthcare bill that's being passed. you know, there are some positives there. so what about his argument that in fact there isn't this complete rejection of the obama agenda? >> i think the message that scott brown so effectively gave in massachusetts -- and by the way, he's entitled to the lion's share of the credit. he was a fantastic candidate with exactly the right message at exactly the right time. but the message was not let's tweak this thing around the ed
say that. i would just tell them if we do nothing, the medicare trust fund would be exhausted in seven years. the plan we have before the senate would extend the life of medicare for nine more years. if we do nothing, there will be 57 million americans uninsured instead of 47 million in just a few years and the cost of the average health insurance plan for the average family of four will double in the next ten years if we do nothing. that's why we think this is a serious issue. >> schieffer: i don't think anybody would argue that it is not a serious issue, senator durbin. let me just ask you this. what senator mccain said. he said he is willing to try to get some republicans to sit down with democrats and see what you agree on. what would be wrong with that just saying here's what out there. we agree with this. we don't agree with that and pass what you agree on. wouldn't that be a start? >> there's nothing wrong with it. but, bob, for the record, president obama met personally with the republican leaders in the house and senate before this began and engaged them and asked them, be par
to realize that perhaps digging in on things like the public option, on expanding medicare, on closing the doughnut hole maybe is a better strategy for winning over that 60th vote, but unless we win over the country on this debate, we can't do any big thing like this without muscular clear leadership on -- outside the beltway which we just haven't had. >> what are you going to do different? you tried to pass the bill in the senate. you couldn't get more than 60 senators. now you've got 59. what can you do different going ahead that you didn't do before? what's the change? i don't get the change here you're proposing. >> i think here's the difference. we've been obsessing recently, what is olympia snowe going to do and joe likeman and ben nelson? >> but you don't know. >> what i'm saying, trying to get to 60, we lost sight of that's not the way americans look at this challenge. they want improved health care with lower costs and things like that. i think that the president of the united states at his state of the union address should do for health care what he did today is say, look, we
over the next ten years, the medicare drug benefit will, which is about the cost of the health benefits. so these people just have no credibility whatsoever when they complain about deficits. post ogre book is about this a deli or of supply-side economics as reaganomics as it has been known. starts with a look back to fdr. in a chapter to the triumph of keynesian economics. >> guest: my basic idea was that i had observed the supply-side economics had gone to recycle where there was a real problem that the existing orthodox couldn't handle the new philosophy, the supply-side philosophy, came into existence was implemented come appeared to be successful and then henceforth it was supplied in every circumstance, whether was justified or not. say what kind of a cycle of success and failure. and as i thought about it, i realized that keynesian economics have gone through exactly the same cycle. it had been implemented in 1930's, helped and the great depression, but then was misapplied in the 1950's and 60's and give us inflation. so it seemed to me there was a cemetery here that was interest

during a recession. it takes half a trillion dollars from medicare and -- to create another entitlement program. i think it is fundamentally flawed. there are things we can agree on -- insurance reform, making insurance more portable, dealing with pre-existing conditions. the focus needs to be on making health care more affordable. this bill made it more expensive. and crew government. -- and grew government. guest: you came out today to say that she will oppose ben bernanke for re-confirmation that the federal reserve. democrats are signaling that they have the votes. do you think that is the case? guest: i think that is a fluid thing. i know there are some democrats who have announced they are opposed to the nomination. the vote in the banking committee was a divided vote. people are digesting what they have been told by the voters in massachusetts and how that taps into the national mood in their own prospects in 2010. i think what the voters have told us this week is that the truck -- they do not want the same old thing. they want a fresh start. there of people will listen. i think

and the debate has been exploding. >> i have been told there is a clause in there that everyone that is medicare age will be visited and told to decide how they wish to die. this bothers me greatly and i would like for you to promise me that this is not in this bill. >> nobody is going to be forcing you to make a set of decisions on end of life care based on some bureaucratic law in washington. >> mr. president, i make a living selling individual health insurance. why is it that you have changed your strategy from talking about healthcare reform to health insurance reform and decided to villify the insurance companies? >> that is a fair question. my intent is not to villify insurance companies. if i was villifying them, it is what we would be doing would be to say that private insurance has no place in the healthcare market and some people believe that. i don't believe that. in is historic vote that took place this morning, members of the senate joined their colleagues in the house of representatives to pass a landmark health insurance reform package. if this legislation becomes law workers won'

, but will not be if we don't make some changes. now, here's the good news. compared to medicare, social security is actually in reasonably good shape, and with some relatively small adjustments, you can have that solvent for a long time. so social security is going to be there. i know a lot of people are concerned about it. social security we can fix. now, in terms of the cola, the formula -- cola stands for cost of living allowance, so it's put in place to make sure that social security is keeping up with inflation. here's the problem. this past year, because of the severity of the recession, we didn't have inflation; we actually had deflation. so prices actually fell last year. as a consequence, technically, seniors were not eligible for a cost of living adjustment, to have it go up because prices did not go up in the aggregate. that doesn't mean that individual folks weren't being pinched by higher heating prices or what have you, but on average prices went down. here's what we did. working with these key members of congress here, we did vote to provide a $250 one-time payment to seniors, whi

a policy point of view video what this ended up being was a $2.5 trillion bill, they cut medicare by half a trillion dollars, raised taxes by a half a trillion dollar, drive up insurance premiums for most americans, that's not preform. that didn't have much appeal to republican senators. >> so tick off the top three points of the republican plan for health care reform. >> first you do have to do it on a bipartisan basis. you put the cspan cameras in the room as the president said. you start with junk lawsuits against doctors and hospital, interstate competition among insurance companies, and many of my members would be looking -- willing to look at equalizing the tax code. right now if you're a corporation and you provide insurance, for your employees you get to deduct it on your corporate tax return. if you're an individual on the individual market, you don't. step by step to work on the cost problem. that's what republicans are willing to do. >> is universal coverage a priority? >> expanding coverage is a good idea. but even under this $2.5 trillion monstrosity they didn't end up coveri
, we don't have one. we have a quasi system of medicare and medicaid, half of all government expenditures paid for by the government -- half of health care expenditures. to put it simply they involve massive subsidization of everybody and keep the prius below what they would pay in a market. what happens is is elementary. if you subsidize something you get more of it. once you get more to get big explosion in demand and eventually the government has to put a cap on that and then you get rid of rationing and when that happens you get lines and who is going to go to the top-of-the-line? i will tell you, we know this and have this, people like me with connections, people who are knowledgeable, the king gave the system. will go to the bottom? look at poor west virginians. so if you want to be fair this is not a curse system. now, to do this we would have to talk about what a feasible alternative, real market based insurance would look like. he wanted to talk about that? >> yes please. >> we have to compare two alternative because is not fair to look in a system and say it has a p

the stops to try to shove this government takeover of health care with medicare cuts and tax hikes. there is a sweetheart deal that needs to be cut, democrats can cut it. if there is a vote that needs to be bought, they will buy it. haven't we had enough of government propped up on the payoffs and pork barrel spending? haven't we had enough of the same old loss vs. them politics to distract us from these problems? we are all in this together. many positive solutions will bring us together. for families asking, where are the jobs, republicans have offered common-sense solutions to help small businesses invest in hiring new workers. we have also put forward irresponsible budget blueprint that makes the tough spending choices that others talk about -- we have also put forward a responsible budget blueprint that makes the tough spending choices that others talk about. we do this by implementing smart, common-sense reforms, whether it is letting families and businesses purchase health insurance or ending the job losses that contribute to higher health-care costs. when we get the job don
